I'M NOT SURPRISED. WHY SHOULD I BE?

I don't have TV or cable so I just saw the KUAM newscast online about the theft at St. Francis Church. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be? 

We have a bishop who hid a FORTY MILLION DOLLAR transfer of property for 4 years and it would have remained hidden had he not begun a chain of events (beginning with his illegal ouster of Fr. Paul) that led to the discovery of a clandestinely recorded document handing over the property to the control of Giuseppe and Claudia Gennarini in the corporate person of RMS.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who is completely absent from his diocese weeks and months out of the year to nobody knows where, spending thousands and thousands of nobody knows whose dollars.


I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who imports men-children from all over the globe to fill his presbyter playpen at our expense and when they are so-called "ordained" they disappear or infiltrate our parishes with insults to the culture and a refusal to bury anybody on Saturday - their high holy day. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who publicly rejected the magisterial authority of Holy Catholic Church while publicly calling into question the credentials of the Cardinal Prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship who spoke in the name of the pope.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who, upon being questioned as to the authority to celebrate the liturgy in ways not permitted by the same Congregation nor by by the Neocatechumenal Statutes, tells us that the document exists "somewhere" and that he just has to "find it" - which, as of today, was ONE YEAR and 76 days ago.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who instead of pastorally engaging a priest who he had a problem with - as Church law requires - threatened the priest with a "painful and arduous closure to his assignment" as pastor of Santa Barbara parish if he didn't resign as ordered.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who accused the pastor of endangering children by permitting a certain man to work at a parish when he himself permitted the same man to work at the same parish 13 years earlier. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who thinks nothing of trashing another priest in the press again, and again, and again, never permitting the priest to defend himself, and ignoring the evidence put forth in the priest's behalf by a group of financial professionals who disproved every one of the bishop's charges.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

Luis in public
We have a bishop who immediately hid one of his pet presbyters after he was caught by police with an underage girl in a car at a deserted beach with his face in something other than his breviary. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who promised an investigation into said presbyter "with his face in something other than his breviary" and there was no investigation. Of course not. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

Luis in hiding

We have a bishop who promised financial transparency and has since released only one abbreviated financial statement going on two years ago.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who promised that the Redemptoris Mater Seminary would publish its financials and the financials have never been published.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who claims that his pet seminary is credentialed by the Pontifical Lateran University but refuses to publish any evidence of it but meanwhile has sucked millions of dollars out of the people of Guam to pay for this playpen. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who for more than a decade claimed that this seminary was our own diocesan seminary and when it was discovered that it wasn't he set up another seminary that is nothing more than a boarding house. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who lied to a local young man about why he could not attend an accredited seminary, even if he paid his own way.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who escaped out the back door of a meeting with visitors from Rome and the clergy rather than walk out the front door and face Catholics praying the rosary who simply want accountability and justice in their Church. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who hired an expensive law firm to opine in his favor in the matter of the Yona property and then withdrew the report supposedly exonerating himself from public view after a lawyer went to examine it - and upon examination was not permitted to sit down, take notes, take pictures, make copies, and had to be watched by a chancery staff the whole time. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who published a bogus certificate of title in his own Catholic newspaper as proof of ownership of the Yona property, since obviously his story about the law firm was proven a lie. 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who was apparently willing to pull strings to procure the bogus certificate - or maybe he threatened them with an "arduous and painful closure" to their assignments if they didn't comply.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who fires the archdiocesan sex abuse response coordinator when the sex abuse response coordinator actually begins to coordinate a response to alleged sex abuse in which the bishop himself is named and replaces him with a neocat lackey who immediately derails any and all response to the alleged sex abuse by pronouncing the bishop innocent "for sure, for sure." 

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop who has been hiding who he really is since April 15, 1977.

I'm not surprised. Why should I be?

We have a bishop about whom you will soon learn so much more. 

Courage.

    1. Anon 5:25, You call exposing the truth hate, Have you not been taught that when you know something is wrong and ignore to say something about it, you are guilty for allowing error to persist, Or are you expecting those who bring light to these errors to just bite their lip, be quiet and allow error to thrive? Wrong is wrong whether it is the Bishop, or President, especially when they are proven to be habitual liars and deceivers. We have an obligation to speak the truth. Carry on exposing the truth Tim, There are many who appreciate knowing the truth. By their fruit will they know that one is a follower of Christ who is the Truth..

  2. I was expecting something along the following as your final comment:
    All this would not have happened if not for the apathy of our parishioners and parish priests who prefer to just talk about it in whispers and not actually do something about it in the name of obedience and respect for the office. With such an attitude prevailing in our community, who would be surprised at the present state of affairs?

  4. We will soon hear Neo's clamor lies, lies. I will challenge them that Rohr is very specific in listing all the misdeeds and action of Apruron. If were in Apuron's shoes. I will sue for defamation of character. We can soon expect Zoltan to scream lies, lies, Lies. I won;t hold my breath waiting for Bro Tony to file for defamation. Tick Tock, tick, tock. Bro Ton take Rohr to court if he indeed is lying, but as usual your silence will be deafening and revealing.

  6. Amazingly, many devout Catholics still go to the archbishop for confession. T

    1. The good news is that the sacraments operate "ex opere operato Christi" (in the work worked by Christ). However, for this to even be true, a priest, regardless of his own moral state, must at least intend what the Church intends. And if Apuron believes that Christ is only a man, a sinner just like us, as we have heard taught by his neo-priest, then the sacrament would not operate "ex opere operato Christi". Good luck.

    2. Thank God Sacraments work “ex opere operato”, and not “ex opere operantis”, because if it is the other way around, those confessed sins would certainly not be forgiven, if the disposition/intention of the confessor is suspect. “Good luck” to the poor penitent, as Tim alluded. That is why – to be on the safe side – make your confession to a bona fide priest, not a presbyter. The same goes for attending a Neo Eucharistic Celebration celebrated by a presbyter; go to Mass instead, celebrated by a priest, to make sure that the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is validly confected, and that you are receiving Christ in Holy Communion! – jrsa (3/4/16)

  8. Apuron will be angry with all you guys! Please, it's Archbishop, not Bishop!!
    If you're going to tell the truth about him, at least call him by his right title. Arrogant ArchDeceiver is more like it.

  9. Hmmm, what a write-up Mr Tim. Are you planning to overthrow the Bishop? Do you want to become the next Bishop? Washing the dirty linens of the Bishop for the world to see is not a good way to treat a man of God, our words should be construed in such a way that it will bring edification to the body of christ. Christ expects us to lift up the church in our words, but it is a shame that the time which we ought to channel into productive things are being utilized on the wrong things. Times that are supposed to be spent on evangelism, encouraging unification of the churches and playing down demoralizing stories are being channeled towards propagating the gospel of the devil.
    What exactly is the gospel of the devil? Malice, strive, hatred, stirring up people against the church, malicious intents towards men of God, envy, backbiting etc they are all gospels of the devil......

    I wish I can have a blog like this so that I can spend all day educating people about the things of God, about living a life of holiness, about living a life free from condemnation, then carrying along people whereby we can all fellowship in unity without judging any church or "spiritual Elders of the church".

    For someone to be made a Bishop, he must have been anointed, and deem fit for the job, it is not a post for an immature mind, it is a post for a man assigned by God almighty to do the job. Kindly respect your Bishop sirs, if you feel he is not doing it right, why not pray for him, "Prayer is the master key that opens even the most barricaded doors".......The first Anonymous(march 1, 2016. 5:25am) commenter saw through your words, and he reproved you in his little way. Kindly post things that will lead people to God, things that will bring glory to the name of God. God bless the Bishop, and God bless you Mr Tim.

    1. LOL. You "wish you could have a blog like this?" LOL. Ummm, why don't you start one. You'll need a brain though. BTW, ever heard of Nestorius?

      Delete
    2. You probably haven't, so I'll tell you - and for the sake of others who haven't. Nestorius was the Patriarch of Constantinople (d. 450 A.D.). That's like the second highest position in the Church next to the Pope of Rome. In fact, at the time they were considered equals. Nestorius is famous because a famous heresy was named after him: the Nestorian heresy. The heresy spread throughout the Arabian peninsula where a young Arab picked it up. His name was Muhammed. Too bad nobody stood up to Nestorius when he first went off track. Every major heresy that has rent the Catholic Church and cause the divisions we see today was begun by a priest or a bishop. Get it?

    Dear adebiyi. I pray for the bishop every night when I walk. I pray for the reunification of our church. This is always my first rosary intention. But the reality is that our church has some very serious problems that takes true leadership to resolve. The problems are not insurmountable but they need to be addressed.

    Mr Rohr has provided a forum to bring to light the problems that are tearing our diocese apart. If our leader would sit with people to discuss these problems we might actually make some headway. But so far all efforts of dialog have been rejected by our bishop.

    I will continue to pray but I will also continue to advocate for a change in how our diocese is being managed and run. I encourage all neos to also urge the bishop to dialog with those who bring to light problems that must be addressed.

    These problems include illegal transfer of property, violations of our sex abuse policy, ignoring and discouraging vocations not stemming from the neo-way, and violating canon law in the treatment of priests, and liturgical abuses.

    I have direct experience and firsthand knowledge in these areas, and I have tried without success to open discussion directly with my bishop. So far the only meeting he had called me to was To meet with his representatives who threatened to censure me for joining a group committed to help the diocese. He has not responded to my pleas to correct several serious problems.

    All these problems can be resolved, but they will never be fixed until all parties can honestly admit that problems exist, and all people are committed to fixing them. It must start with honest discussion, but so far our bishop seems reluctant to enter into discussions.

    Perhaps from the inside all neos can encourage the bishop to start the process. And don't forget to pray as well. I continue with my prayers for all people of our diocese.

    1. Steve – I, like you, - notwithstanding my strong opposition to his words and actions - continue to pray for a change of heart of our archbishop. It almost sounds like a hypocritical contradiction to say that, but I, too, offer my nightly bedtime rosary for the same intentions that you do at your nightly walks. And I suspect that many in our CCOG organization do the same – fighting this “war” from both fronts – actions, supported by prayers.

      Many – for very good reasons – have just completely given up on metanoia. It’s am awfully thin thread of hope we’re hanging on, but I draw at least an iota of strength and hope from the example of the mother (Santa Monica) of my patron saint (St. Augustine), whose prayers eventually brought us a great scholar and Father of the Church – or the greatest example of conversion when Saul became the Apostle of the Gentiles – Paul.

      If only our archbishop will cease from spurning our prayers, and allow the Holy Spirit to do the miracle of conversion, we might make some headway toward REAL peace, harmony, and unity within our Church. And if he won’t – because he can’t – maybe we can connect with some good Neos who may share the same objectives – and work something out without compromising our Faith.

      I concur with your concluding statement that “all these problems can be resolved, but they will never be fixed until all parties can honestly admit that problems exist, and all people are committed to fixing them. It must start with honest discussion, but so far our bishop seems reluctant to enter into discussions. Perhaps from the inside all neos can encourage the bishop to start the process. And don't forget to pray as well. I continue with my prayers for all people of our diocese.”

      I’ve often thought of this alternative to healing! In the meantime, however, we gotta do what we gotta do, just like the warriors fought off the Turks at Lepanto in 1517, and saved the day, while Masses and prayers were being said at churches and convents through the land! – JRSA (3/4/16).

  12. I heard that apuron was furious when he found out about the embezzling of funds from St. Francis Church. He was furious because he does not like competition!

  13. Adebiyi,
    Since you do not appear to be certain if a bishop is anointed, Yes he is in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, In fact in the preface of "Christus Dominus", it affairms "The bishops themselves, however, having been appointed by the Holy Spirit, are successors of the Apostles as pastors of souls.(3) Together with the supreme pontiff and under his authority they are sent to continue throughout the ages the work of Christ, the eternal pastor." However as all rational creatures of God, we each are given the intellect whose object is the search of the truth, and the free will to follow the ways of God or to choose otherwise. Our Bishop has not been truthful, and forthright in any of the questionable issues that have been brought up against him, He has not responded to any effort at reconciling the church that he is the Father, Shepherd, and Teacher of. There is no question that we must continue to pray for him, and many people do. I would advise you to be very familiar with all the issues that the Guam Faithful are facing, most especially the lack of response from our Bishop. It is easy for you to evangelize and judge from thousands of miles away, but my friend, you are looking at the stained glass from the outside. You cannot appreciate its true colors, unless you look from the inside.

  14. I stopped praying for ArchNEO Cult Presbyter Apuron ever since he crucified both Reverend Father Paul and the Very Reverend Monsignor James in a public forum without any canonical process. He freely gave the local chair of St Peter through his continuous web of lies and the breaking of more than one of God's Commandments...He and his handler NEO Cult Presbyter Pius will indeed meet each other in hell. There is absolutely Nothing we can do to stop this from happening....JOY
